I'm camerounian I built a webapp whose allows
students to consult
So you don't need the originals, only thumbs.
without internet connectivity,many school accepted
the application and the application is hosted on a server and shared by
wifi on each school.
Nice! It seems you may want to use this existing software solution:
That way, you can use the available ZIM files with no need to generate
or download (and compress) the thumbnails yourself.
Your help developing the software would be very useful and you could
avoid doing yourself what you don't have the resources (bandwidth) to do.
I have all the other dumps of wikipedia articles in
french and english;but I don't have any image because they are too heavy
for me to be downloaded to my side (3 TB) and I have a low bandwidth (40
ko/s when it's fast).
The webapp works on a browser and i don't know if the zim format can be
undecompressed to get small images (jpeg,png,svg...).
Kiwix is a browser, you can save anything you want AFAIK.
This is the video demo (3min in french) of the webapp
If I get small images in french and english to download to the app,my
problem will revolved.
Tank a lot Federico

Please I want to get all images of wikipedia frensh and English,
did it cost to book it on hardisk? In can't download it because
have enought bandwidth from my country.
What do you need them for?
Originals would be about 2+1 TB and anyone can download and ship
them for you:
Otherwise there are the ZIM files with thumbnails compressed,
fr.wiki is 14 GB but en.wiki is not available yet.
